Calling all bath lovers! This is the ultimate set to soak up the holiday season.

Toss one into your bath or your kids’, and watch it explode to turn the water into a colorful, fizzy wonderland.

For the Skin-Care Buff

Drunk Elephant The Trunk 6.0 ($450)

Coolers were all the rage this year, and of course Drunk Elephant chose a limited-edition, insulated LAKA one to house its cult-favorite holiday Trunk this year. What’s inside? Everything your skin desires! Ten full-size products, including Protini Polypeptide Cream, C-Firma Fresh Day Serum, T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum, A-Gloei Maretinol Oil, C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream, Wonderwild Miracle Butter, Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial and T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial (there are also samples of seven other favorites). The products alone are worth $622, so the cooler is just a really fun bonus!

For the Candle Connoisseur

NEST Festive Votive Trio ($48)

How chic is this three-piece votive candle set? Tie a red bow around it and your gift is complete! Inside you’ll find the brand’s iconic holiday scents, including Holiday—this one is my absolute favorite, with hints of cinnamon, and it epitomizes Christmastime—Birchwood Pine (think sophisticated Christmas tree farm) and new Crystallized Ginger & Vanilla Bean, which also has a swirl of cinnamon and smells like a yummy dessert, but not in that too-sweet, headache kind of way.

7 / 15

For the Hair-Care Aficionado

amika Smooth Talker Double Agent Straightening Blow Dry Brush Hair Set ($112.50)

Everything you need to create a smooth, salon-worthy blowout, this gift set is an incredible value. The brush itself is $150, so you’re essentially getting five of amika’s best-selling products free. To wash and condition, you get travel-size versions of The Kure Bond Repair; to boost shine, you get a travel-size Flash Instant Shine Mask; and to detangle and prep your hair for heat-styling, you get The Wizard Silicone-Free Detangling Primer. And on top of those, you also get a full-size bottle of the brand’s famous, best-smelling Perk Up Dry Shampoo (it’s also been tested and proved to be free of benzene).

For the Wine Lover

Bev Chicks Pack ($99)

One of the most fun wine companies out there, this wine variety pack is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face (they’ll be the life of any holiday party, too). Each 24-can box comes with four cans each of six different varietals: Rosé, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc (my personal fave), Pinot Noir, Sparkling Rosé, Sparkling White, which come in glittery “Glam” cans.

If you’re not familiar with Bev, these wines have zero added sugar—a huge point of difference because of the grapes and fermentation process used—and each can is around 160 calories and holds 8.4 ounces of wine (a glass and a half!).

9 / 15

For the Spa Goer

Bath & Body Works Lavender Vanilla Aromatherapy Spa Box ($55)

Gift this set on its own, or pair with it a gift card to your local spa, and you’re sure to impress this year. Inside the box, you get a single-wick candle, a body wash and bath foam, a body lotion, and a travel-size essential oil mist to help you drift off on a long flight, or keep it on your nightstand for a nightly spritz.

All four pieces boast the same dreamy lavender-vanilla scent, which is incredibly soothing and designed to calm the mind. Plus, if you’re too busy to deal with wrapping paper, just stick a bow on this box and you’re done!

10 / 15

For the Tea Taker

David’s Top Teas Sachet Tea Wheel ($39)

Just as my husband gets giddy over a new bag of coffee, I look forward to trying new flavors of tea (I made the switch from java years ago, though I still fancy a cup every now and then), and this variety pack is bursting with different options. The curated collection features 12 of David’s top teas and blends (three of each), including Buddha’s Blend, Cinnamon Rooibos Chai, Cream of Earl Grey, David’s Breakfast Blend, Forever Nuts, Japanese Sencha, Peppermint Amour, Pomegrateful, Serenity Now, Silk Dragon Jasmine, Valerian Night and Vanilla Cappuccino.

For the New Mom

The Honest Company Baby Arrival Gift Set ($50)

Any first-time mama will be so grateful for this fully stocked box of baby must-haves (it’s also a great baby shower gift). Not only do you get five of the brand’s best-sellers—Organic All-Purpose Balm, Shampoo + Body Wash in Lavender, Face + Body Lotion in Lavender, Diaper Rash Cream, and Free & Clear Hand Sanitizer Spray (a diaper bag necessity)—but you also get seven Size 1 diapers and two 10-count packs of wipes. Trust me, you will use every single thing in here, and then a whole lot more!

15 / 15

For the Self-Care Savant

Kitsch x Sprinkles Body Wash Bars Collection ($29)

Bar soaps have made a major comeback in the past year, and this dessert-inspired set flips the classic white oval on its head. In collaboration with Sprinkles (the iconic cupcake company out of Washington, D.C.), Kitsch has created an irresistibly delicious three-piece set of body wash bars inspired by three popular cupcake flavors: chocolatey red velvet, sweet strawberry delight and warm vanilla cream.

Not only do the bars give a nice creamy lather, but they’re also an eco-friendly option. Each one reduces single-use plastic by saving two bottles of liquid body wash.
